About Pink QuartzHide

Formula:
SiO2
Synonym:
A synonym of Rose Quartz
A name suggested for pink-colored well-crystallized quartz with phosphorous-based and irradiation-induced color centers to distinguish them from massive pink-colored quartz (the classic rose quartz) that is colored by inclusions. The name not received widespread support. See (Hori, 2001) or "Rosaquarz" (German for pink quartz, Rykart, 1995).
